Today marks nine whole years since the original launch of Sylestia; all the way back on December 17th of 2012. It is crazy to think that it has already been so long. It's also crazy to see how much Sylestia has grown since then.

Any player who has logged in or created an account at any point from December 17th, 2020 through December 16th, 2021 has received a special token of appreciation. Be sure to check your Player Trades for that!

We first want to thank everyone who has supported us throughout all of these years - we absolutely would not still be here without the immense support of countless players from all over the world. It never ceases to humble us to see the outpouring of support week after week, month after month. So thank you so much!

Overall, I know progress hasn't been the best over the past few years, but I do believe that Sylestia is now finally turning a corner and I am very excited to see what 2022 will bring. There are a lot of major projects finally converging and I do think that 2022 will very likely be our final full year in a beta state.

Here are some highlights of what we are hoping to get released in 2022:

-Final dungeons for the Ancient Temple within the Lost Grove

-New Hatchery page with updated features and mechanics

-New Breeding Grounds with tons of updates and new features for players to utilize

-Pet Broker system to handle the sales/renting of Pets amongst players

-Miscellaneous projects, such as a new Pet Genetics page (haven't exactly figured out what I want to do about this. Atm, work has been a hybrid of just a new separate Genetics page and an entirely new Profile page. So, TBD on this one, but it's just an example of a smaller project being worked on)

-Faelora Revamp being finished

All in all, this upcoming year should bring about a lot of constant updates and new features. We are very excited to dive into these and get them released out to players. Some of them are long overdue!

Thank you again for everyone's support throughout all of these years. We are truly excited to continue having everyone along for this journey as we continue growing and evolving Sylestia!

As a side note regarding the Winter Festival, I am not sure I will be able to get everything ready by a decent time today. I have been out of town this past week and don't return until December 19th. This unfortunately makes it a bit harder for me to get things done as quickly as I can from home.

Most everything with the Festival is pretty much ready to go, I just am trying to finish putting all the pieces together. If I don't feel as if I can get the Festival enabled by 4 PM today, I will push it back until tomorrow between 12 - 4 PM. You can keep an eye on the MOTD banner for further updates regarding this.

Thank you for all your hard work. It's so good to see so many people enjoy Sylestia, it's truly a community. I'm sure the winter festival will be super fun as well, and take some well-deserved rest too, Krin!

Thank you Krin! This is a good distraction from serious tech problems with my finals, so yay for that!

I appreciate all of the hard work and effort that has gone into this amazing game. I only just started playing Sylestia a few months ago, but I have been playing online pet sims like this for many years. I tried so many. And without a doubt, this is the very best one I've come across. It has the most balanced features, a wonderful community, is a genuine joy to play, and it always has something new to explore!

I wish I had discovered it back when it first launched, but at least I've found it now. I hope it continues to become more widely recognized. Keep up the excellent work!

Happy Holidays,
